I had just graduated from HS and drove up in my Spitfire with my neighbor Bill to catch this show. Mellow and that is the way I have always loved the Dead. Triping in the sun..........Grarcia later!
Nice show. Very good recording considering that it is almost thirty eight years old. Part of Casey Jones is missing.

"Turn me up" -- says Bobby
"you're loud - you're loud" -- says the Jer
And so it begins
Vocals are supreme

Subject: Watch the harmonies
Good sounding show, although the harmonies (admittedly never the band's strong suit), particularly on "across the rio gran-dee-o" are almost unbearable. Worth nabbing from the server, though.
Subject: Stage banter....
The first set is a "typical" line up for this time, but still sounds great opening with three gems. Second set proves to be quite a good listen but what made my day was Comes a Time, love that tune. Overall a very relaxed show, the banter is funny. Only thing lacking is the overall sound quality....good show to listen to while taking it easy. But after careful consideration, I dig it.... beter than most.
Subject: Dark Star -> Comes a Time
This is so beautiful. I mean Jerry sounds sooooooooooooo incredible. Five stars for Dark Star -> Comes a Time.
Subject: Not This One
First bad review I've ever written on a dead show. I usually don't take the time but a lot of this sounds like a poor Grateful Dead cover band.
I don't know if this is a result of so many good shows taken out of the archive or what but even the Dark Star - Comes a time don't save it. Not when there is so much good listening on this site. Move on and find a good one to listen to.
Subject: Its great!
I'm only 26, and have been a head for about 5 years now, I'm not sure what other people think but man am i grateful for this music and Archive putting it on. The sound is awesome to me. I love the hesitation's in quality, makes it even that more original. Nothing beats listening to this on a great sunny day in the mountains.

Subject: The better version
According to the comments at db.etree.org, this version is made from a better sounding source than the other version available at Archive.
Subject: Great Show!
Awesome sound quality. Very nice China Cat > Rider. He's Gone is very sweet. Great laid back show!
Subject: Stage Banter is fun, music and sound quality funner.
I woke up early today...Right around 8am...I wanted a mellow show to listen to that would gently wake me up. Not a spring 90...too rockin...not a 77, too sleepy...Not a 82, to Persianed...So I click on mid 72 and come right to this...Living in Oregon, I hit stream....It has been a very relaxed, positive, and healthy morning. Jerry's voice is like slices of velvet moonbeam spiraling up through the break of dawn.
Subject: Not a drum solo
There is a distinct Bird Song reference about a minute before the verse in Dark Star.
Very beautiful playing, and excellent sound quality.

Subject: approval of show
put on headphones, started at dark star:
sat outside in the windy night air, viewed the inside of my head,
then i learned what life is all about listening to a song called "Comes a Time." learning to learn is what i learned to do that evening.
"comes a time, when the blind man, takes your hand, says 'dont you see?' you gotta make it somehow." "cause youre afraid to fall, but the day may come, when you can't feel at all"
theres something truly special in this music.

5 million billion kajillion stars for this one.
Subject: aint gonna be treated this ol' way
i'm sitting at my desk right now, truly amazed by where technology has brought us in the past 10 years. i'm speaking of digital music and dissemination of music over a lossless, infinite lineage. now that most every dead show is available on archive.org, i can sit and recall my favorite old cassette shows, you know, the 8th gen audience from 1973, or the high quality shows i've lost nonetheless. then i got thinking about this show from june, 72. paramount, portland. rain and snow opener that was my soundtrack as i drove across country to california in an effort to catch garcia's memorial.
so i found the show. and i'm streaming it now. haven't heard it in about 8 years. the man's been gone too long i guess.
so as i well up inside over this beautiful music, i think back to how i went about getting my first tapes, what it took, the inconsistent and inefficient manner of exchange, the lineage, the hierarchy, the sport. now, all i need to do is recall a show, do a bit of research, or even randomly stumble, and i have instant access to the best versions known to man. consider this as such an exponential growth of human awareness and understanding. if not that, at least a kick ass way to get every dark star recorded.
